The Imperium of the West of Franco-British-American Empire is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Emperor Edward X Windsor with an iron fist, and notable for its deadly medical pandemics, digital currency, and compulsory gun ownership. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 2.168 billion Franco-British-Americans are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Industry, Education, and Administration are also considered important, while International Aid receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Sheffield. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 92.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Franco-British-American economy, worth 729 trillion Franco-British-American Dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, fairly diversified black market in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Uranium Mining. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 336,481 Franco-British-American Dollars, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,055,186 per year while the poor average 82,213, a ratio of 12.8 to 1.

Internet moderator is one of the most popular jobs among the nation's more socially awkward citizens, the fire brigade often deal with cases of burnt toast, citizens spend millions on microtransactions to feed virtual orphans while actual orphans starve overseas, and truancy officers have a hard time catching children trained in advanced camouflage skills. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Franco-British-American Empire's national animal is the Eagle-Lion, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is Anglican Protestantism.

Franco-British-American Empire is ranked 6,486th in the world and 11th in Institute of Cellulose for Rudest Citizens, with 131.38 Insults Per Minute.
